Charming Connecticut Bed & Breakfast Lets Guests Travel Back In Time

Heavitree B&B in Griswold, Connecticut is a magical place. This 18th Century home sits on more than 140 acres of lush farmland.  Charlotte Geer runs this wonderful bed and breakfast and it was her ancestors who settled on the land in 1635 from Heavitree, England.  The original structure was a tavern located in Rhode Island which had plans to be destroyed to make way for new construction.  At this time, Charlotte was looking for an early home to compliment her family's historic farm land.  When you walk through the doors you are taken back in time yet you have all the modern amenities of today.

Michael and I had the most memorable weekend at Heavitree. Charlotte could not have been a more kind or gracious host. The table was always set for a beautiful meal--and she is a fabulous cook! We enjoyed a candlelit dinner by the fire one evening and then the next morning woke up to her breakfast speciality--a delicious eggs benedict.
